2021/2022 Local Transport Plan Capital Programme

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

That the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee:

 

1)             Recommends that Policy & Resources Committee agrees the 2021/22 Local Transport Plan capital programme budget allocation of £4.538 million, as set out in Appendix 1 of this report.

 

2)             Requests that a further report be brought back to a future meeting of this committee in order to consider and agree the detailed allocation of the £3.9 million Sustainability & Carbon Reduction Investment Fund [SCRIF] budget to transport projects and programmes, as summarised in paragraphs 3.8 and 3.9 and Appendix 1 of this report.

Minutes:

84.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that requested recommendation to the Policy & Resources Committee of the 2021/22 Local Transport Plan (LTP) capital programme budget of £4.538 million.

 

84.2      In response to a question from Councillor Fowler, it was confirmed that in broad terms, the Bikeshare scheme was under a process of reprocurement including the provision for e-bikes and expansion of the scheme across the city and Greater Brighton region.

 

84.3      In response to an observation by Councillor Brown relating to the low figure allocated to pedestrian crossings, it was explained that the £25k identified would supplement the previous years’ funding that was not fully spent.

 

84.4      In response to questions from Councillor Appich, it was explained that the use of the term ‘targeting’ was in a general sense as each of the workstreams would have different processes associated. In relation to Sackville Road, the investment in this area had been delivered through the Access Fund and the detail of that project could be provided in writing subsequent to the meeting. In response to the query raised on interchange facilities at paragraph 3.20 of the report, it was explained that this related to cycle and motorcycle parking and improvements to accessible bus stops based on requests received from residents. It was further explained that Section 106 funding could only be used for the specified items identified in the agreement.

 

84.5      RESOLVED-

1)             Recommends that Policy & Resources Committee agrees the 2021/22 Local Transport Plan capital programme budget allocation of £4.538 million, as set out in Appendix 1 of this report.
